New Home

HI! I am back! Hope your week is off to a good start. Thank you all for the sweet, sweet comments on my last post-they were so nice to come back to! Moving went very smooth. Unfortunately, my tummy issues came back and I ended up sick in bed/head in toilet all day Monday. I think I am getting closer to 100% now! AND today we officially sold our house up in MD! Fabulous! To celebrate, we went out to eat at our favorite little Mexican restaurant, Los Arcos. I got chicken with beans and a side salad but the picture came out blurry so....

Instead, I decided to post pictures of our cute little window seat and family room. Please excuse the clutter, as we're still finishing unpacking/organizing!


The room has tons of awesome windows(Josh and I are huge fans of good lighting):


Any how, more to come! Cannot wait to start cooking in my new kitchen. What is your favorite part of your house/apartment/room/etc?

Welcome back! Hope you're feeling better!! Best of luck making your new house a home :)

My favorite parts of our new house (we move in this weekend!) are the kitchen and the loft/bonus room.

Sarah W. said...

oh my gosh -I LOVE your new house!!!!! the windows are awesome - that window seat is gorgeaous!!!

lilveggiepatch said...

It's beautiful! Look at all that LIGHT! It's so roomy, and I love all those windows.

My favorite room in my apartment here (school) is the living room... the window is almost as big as the wall and has great lighting in the morning. I always take my oatmeal pictures in there so I don't have to use the flash!

Heather said...

congrats! i didn't know you were moving up to MD. The DC area is great!

your windows look lovely. my favorite spot in our house is our fireplace in the winter, and our porch in the summer. well... and my bed. i love my bed year round.

glad you're feeling better. does the pupster like his new digs?

foodsthatfit said...

I'm so glad your move is over, what a relief for you! Sorry you were feeling lousy, but I hope you are back to 100% soon!

I have to say that my favorite part of my home is my FOYER! I love that I can greet people in a hall without worrying about them entering into the whole house right off the bat. Here is a picture - http://www.flickr.com/photos/calicodaisy/2406043126/in/set-72157604483901608/.

Sara said...

I love it! My favorite room in my house is the family room, it's got great vaulted ceilings.

HangryPants said...

Sorry about the tummy issues!!!! Your house looks beautiful. Incentive to move to the south I think.

My favorite room is the living room because it's finished and warm.

Sharon said...

Oh wow, I love it! I love the windows too!

bHealthier said...

home sweet home for sure!

it looks fantastic and so happy you are feeling better! poor thing! moving can always be so exhausting in many ways!

hmm... i don't have a fav part of our home yet, we are looking foward to remodelling.

emilydh211 said...

lookin good girl! I LOVE the new place.

my fave part of my house is the "bedroom" that my roommate and I transformed into a HUGE walk-in closet. complete with leopard print ottomans and fur-lined draws for shoes.

alessa said...

congrats!! how exciting! i wish i could own a home, but my apartment will due for now. haha :)

ChickPea said...

What a lovely home!

My fave part of my apartment is the kitchen--everything matches: red pans, towels (with cherries), dishes...it makes me smile every time I walk in:)

Diana said...

Yay! I missed your posts these past few days! The house looks amazing -- congratulations again! :)

I think my favorite part of my apartment is the kitchen -- it's a big one for an apartment and I always feel happy when I'm in there! (Probably because it means I'm going to be eating soon!)

Andrea of Care to Eat said...

How exciting! Congratulations :)
The favorite part of my house is my old-fashioned front porch. Unfortunately, I only get to enjoy it in for three months here in Oregon :(

Esi said...

So jealous of all your lighting! My apartment is like a dark, dark cave and it literally looks like night after 12PM. Glad everything went well minus the sickeness. Hoep you feel better ASAP!

Megan said...

yayyyyy new house!! :)

i think my room and my bathroom are my favorites at home; pretty vague, but having a space that is all my own is so wonderful!

Megan said...

omg, p.s. yayyyy for moving to MD!! you are officially a member of the Delmarva (delaware, maryland, virginia) club :) yay!

Pearl said...

Hi Erica! YAAY what a beautiful home! You've won the PB2 Giveaway! Please mail me your address :) ty!

lesley said...

LOVE IT!! : ) It looks so great, and, yes, that lighting DOES look amazing!

I'm so glad you're back. I couldn't help but smile and say "Yay" inside when I woke up and saw a comment from you ; )

Glad everything went smoothly and that you're feeling better! Have a GREAT Wednesday, girl : )

shelby said...

Gorgeous! Seriously. I love all the windows, it brings in so much sunlight.

I love my kitchen, I'm there about 50% of the time haha

Jen (Running with Food) said...

Aww ... sorry about your poor tummy! I suffer from the same sensitivity, that gets even worse with stress, so I can feel your pain. Hope you feel 100% soon!

Your new house is gorgeous. I love all the windows!

Erin of Care to Eat said...

Whoa your house is gorgeous! I LOVE IT! I hope we get even MORE pictures soon! I'm so sorry you had an upset tum again :( You're such a trooper Erica. Did Josh and Frank take care of you?
I love our kitchen/living room. It's one big room and it rules! I can see the TV when I'm cooking, which is really nice! It's mounted about he fireplace and looks pretty spiffy in my opinion!

lauren said...

wow - am loving your house! congrats on the sale in MD too...especially in this market. my favorite part of my house is the roof top deck with a view of the Baltimore skyline!

ksgoodeats said...

Your new house is stunning!! I LOVE high ceilings!

Meghann said...

Moving into a new house is so exciting!!! LOVE the windows and family room! :)

Holly said...

What a GORGEOUS room!! I can't wait to see more of your home - it looks absolutely stunning. I'm glad the move went well!

I HAVE to have a light/bright house...dark to me = depressing. My favorite part of my home is my bedroom because it's quite large and it's my lil' getaway. :-)

I hope your tummy issues go away for good! It's no fun to deal with that stuff, but especially when you have so much going on. Feel better today!

greendogwine said...

So glad you're back! I missed you! :)

The house looks AMAZING! It looks like you guys are expert movers too - my house didn't look anythign like that a few days after moving!

Sorry about your tummy!

Maria said...

I am glad the move went well!! I bet you are so happy to be HOME! I LOVE your house, the windows are so cool! I can't wait to see more.
Sorry about your stomach issues, I have been having similar problems and it is NOT fun!!
We love our kitchen...of course! I also love our big room downstairs, we have a huge couch, tv, pub table, and my elliptical and weights, etc. It is a fun room!!

Michelle said...

Aw, what a great house! Congrats on selling and making it through the move. Sorry to hear about your stomach acting up! We'll totally chat when you get settled :-)

My favorite part of our house is the little room off the living room...too small to be a bedroom or anything but big enough for the (three!) litterboxes and other odds and ends. It's just so nice to have a place to put things like that so they don't clutter up the rest of our place. Real estate in Boston is a lot smaller than down south, so every inch is super valuable!

carolinebee said...

Beautiful!!! I am in love with those vaulted ceilings and natural light! I hope you're gonna have a lil housewarming party :D My fave part of my house is probably my room, it's light blue and v. calming and nice.

just me said...

beautiful home! i love all the natural lighting!!

i'm a big fan of the kitchen...i must have an island when i get my own house!!!

Krista said...

Gorgeous home! I love that little bench seat (and it's colours) and the windows rock!!! Just beautiful! :)

And congrats on the sale of the other house!

Diana said...

Things are very exciting for you right now! (Minus the booting.) Have fun decorating/settling - sometimes that's the best part, even though it's work. :)

luckytastebuds said...

oh man what a cozy looking home with such fabulous high ceilings!!!! My favorite part of home is...my bed. hahaha because i didn't have to pay for it AND it's king sized! yayyy!!

dailygoods said...

so glad everything went well! welcome to your home! how amazing :) and those windows are fabuloussss!!

elise said...

first of all, your place looks GORG! secondly, your question implies i like in a place that has multiple rooms...my kitchen, living room, and bedroom are one in the same - all within an arms reach!! so um, i guess i like the couch area (big windows are nice)

Lori said...

I love your house!! So glad that moving went well and you had a successful sale.
Confession: I've always wanted a window seat. I'm so jealous! :)

We are in the process of house shopping for our move back to the States in Oct. My favorite part is yet to come. :)

Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) said...

Erica,
Congrats on your move AND the sale of your house. Such great news...you give me much hope. :)

Sorry about the tummy troubles, but I'm glad the move went well. Your new house is GORGEOUS. I love all the lights, and I have always wanted a window seat like that.

Hmm, favorite part of my house -the spacious kitchen with lots of counter top space. My last apartment had the tiniest kitchen and NO dishwasher. Much happier now!

The Running Yogini said...

What a beautiful house! I can only imagine how amazing it would be to do yoga as the sun came up in front of those beautiful windows!!! Congrats on the new home :-)

redheadedjournal said...

I love your new place! I bet you are so glad to be moved in!

Sarah said...

Oh my gosh it's lovely! I love the windows, natural light is so important.

My favorite room in the house? Definitely the kitchen, where the magic happens :-)

eatingbender said...

Erica, your new house is BEAUTIFUL! I am so happy for you and Josh - congratulations on selling the house in MD, too! That's HUGE news considering how tough it is out there right now!

I'm sorry to hear that your tummy issues came back :o( How are you doing today?

Favorite part of my apartment: my kitchen and/or big closet!

BOBBI McCORMICK said...

welcome home:)

Danielle said...

So exciting!
Those windows are absolutely gorgeous, what great natural lighting you must have in there!
My favorite part of my apartment is our living room it's just so cozy. But I would totally trade it for a room with windows like that.
